Abstract: The paper highlights the medical diagnostic model using infonomics principles and granular computing. The paper proposes a framework using information valuation terms like: utility, refresh rate and granular elasticity of information with fuzzy rule-based system for developing medical information granules utilised for creation of knowledge base.

Keywords: medical diagnosis; medical infonomics; fuzzy granulerisation; modelling; granular computing; fuzzy rule-based systems; fuzzy logic; knowledge base.
